Fire, passion, ambition, love, confidence and respect of self and others. These are traits that make a woman beautiful. But there’s nothing wrong with putting your best face forward. We scour the world far and wide to bring you the products that should be tucked into your suitcase.
The Promise: A long-lasting re-shapable spray that allows you to shape, hold and re-shape endless edgy styles and stand-out silhouettes over and over again. Reworkable for up to 18 hours.
The Ingredients: Alcohol Denat, Hydrofluorobarbon 152A, Water, Octylacrylamide/Acrylates/Butylaminomethyl Methacrylate Copolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Acetamide MEA, PEG 8 Dimethicone, Ammonium Benzoate, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Glycereth 7 Triacetate, Panthenol, Fragrance, Triethyl Citrate
The Process: Being that I was the type to scoff at the idea that hairspray should cost more than $3.99 because all were created equal (take that, Elnett loyalists), I would have never even discovered this product if not for finding myself in a bind pre-date in the office. My colleague and friend, Kelly, offered me a few spritzes and I was stunned at how well the spray held my hair–and for how long.
The Pros: Instant body when sprayed at the roots, long-lasting hold on the curls and no bad smell or early 90s-style stick.
The Cons: When your rising sign is Leo, you love rocking a big mane. Thus, it’s a monthly purchase. Finding the spray in a travel size is tricky and the bottle is long enough that pulling it out of your purse looks like a scene from Austin Powers.
The Result: The date complimented my “great” hair and when he touched it, not only was there no “crunch,” it bounced right back into place. To say this is the best hairspray I have ever used–and yes, I have tried Elnett–would be a fair statement. Definitely worth the splurge.
